Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 136
Schoolyard Poem

While waiting for my bus to get back to school, I started talking in verse and rhyme, over and over again I did, trying desperately until I finally got on the bus and was able to write it down. This is the end-result. WRITTEN IN SCHOOL, WRITTEN IN A NOTEBOOK Thursday, September 9, 2010




Sometimes I like to gaze through the air and see the worn out faces

Time is early and life is short when you see all of the old places

And by the end of the long day

Not even dawn can take us away


And I speak a lot but I say so little

You never noticed, your life's a riddle

Time dies away and blackness bleeding out

You can speak, but never seem to shout


Mix and match this little puzzle box

Sinking down to drown like rocks

Scars on my arms, you'll never see

Just what is inside and around me


We pursue the light, in spite of our inner dark

Blind to the fact we'll never make it, but I left my mark

Trying to fight without feeling any pain

I could snap and fall off my rope, become insane


Now that time is short, my mind is weak

The air around me explodes as I reach my peak

With nothing left to care for, all I can do

Is write these rhymes, reach out and shout "I love you!"
